Lyric is the second of the Countless Color Pigments that I recently purchased from stila. I was interested in this one as a blush, as these pigments can be worn on eyes or face.
For those not familiar with the Countless Color Pigments, they are a new product that are supposed to be full coverage, long wearing, and are combined of several different color variations in each pan that can be worn alone or blended. The finish is described as a pearl, which I'm guessing is slightly more shimmery than a satin but not as much as a shimmer.
Here you can see the different single colors as well as the blend of all of them in the bottom larger swatch. Some of the colors are more shimmery than others, but blended together, it was a nice balance.
It was shimmery enough to emphasize my larger pores and uneven skin, but I'm guessing that will not be an issue for most. I really do like the color, so I'm sure I'll use it often, as it also makes a nice highlighter on top of other blushes. Wear time was a respectable 8 hours and I could still see color at the end of the day.
The Countless Color Pigments are $22 each and I got mine directly from stila.
About me: I'm 53 with oily but aging skin. Fortunately, the semi-tropical climate and humidity of where I live helps me from looking like the crypt keeper, in spite of all those years soaking up the sun :-) So let's talk skincare and makeup and anything else that strikes our fancy.
